Las Vegas Shooter Identified as 64 Year Old White Male Stephen Paddock


The suspected gunman in the mass shooting at a music festival in Las Vegas has been named as 64-year-old Stephen Paddock.
At least 50 people were killed and more than 200 injured at the Route 91 country music event near the Mandalay Bay Hotel and Casino.
It is the deadliest mass shooting in US history, with the death toll surpassing the 49 killed at a nightclub in Orlando in June 2016.

Witnesses described seeing flashes of light high up in the tower of the Mandalay Bay Hotel and a noise "like firecrackers" as a "clip after clip" was unloaded into the crowd.
The shooter was believed to have been firing down at concert-goers from the 32nd floor.
A Swat team used a controlled explosion to enter the hotel room, where they shot Paddock – of Mesquite, Nevada – dead.
Announcing the suspect's name, Las Vegas Sheriff Joseph Lombardo said police had "located numerous firearms", including rifles, in the hotel room and a search of Paddock's house was due to take place shortly.
He said Paddock was born on the 9 April 1953, adding: "As far as history and background we haven’t completed that part of the investigation."
Police previously said they did not believe the suspect was connected to militant groups.


Sheriff Lombardo added: "We are looking at in excess of 50 individuals dead and over 200 individuals injured ... Obviously this is a tragic incident and one that we have never experienced in this valley. My condolences go out to the loved ones."
The FBI – including federal crime scene investigators – were assisting in the investigation, he said, adding:  "It is going to be a long and tedious investigation."
Authorities said they had found a person of interest in their investigation, a 62-year-old female companion of the shooter called Marilou Danley. Read more here.

  1. White male? So quick to call race when it's a white guy. But if it was a black guy or Muslim, forget it right? And wtf is a swot team? Do you mean a SWAT (special weapons and tactics) team?

    2. If it was a Black person, the media would identify his race immediately!!!! so when race is not mentioned WE KNOW it was a white person

  3. Regardless of the colour of his skin, it is an act of terror. When did we start grading terror based on who is responsible for executing it?
